Earlier this month, Honda notified its dealers that supply shortages caused by flooding in Thailand will delay the arrival of the brand’s new 2012 CR-V CUV.
In an update provided today, the Japanese automaker said that flooding in Thailand continues and a number of Honda suppliers there remain unable to maintain parts production. However, the company said that the 2012 Honda CR-V will launch on schedule in December.

“Honda remains focused on minimizing the impact to its associates and their families and plans no layoffs at any of its North American facilities,” Honda said in a statement. “Non-production days will continue to be treated as “no pay, no penalty,” meaning Honda associates can report to work, use a vacation day, or take the day off without compensation or penalty.”
The 2012 Honda CR-V will make its full production public debut at the 2011 LA Auto Show next week. We’ll be there bringing you details and pictures from the show floor. Stay tuned.
